Chicago-based percussionist and performer Adam Rosenblatt has a penchant for finding interesting and uncommon ways to present and perform contemporary music. He has a keen interest in growing an interdisciplinary performance practice, believing that a mix of media and art forms can speak directly and powerfully to our current context. As such, Rosenblatt is Artistic Co-Director of Beyond This Point, a percussion-based collaborative ensemble that combines artistic mediums to create unique and immersive performance experiences.
Rosenblatt’s variegated skillset has brought him to perform in venues and festivals throughout the US and Europe, from Bang On a Can’s “LOUD Weekend” at MassMoCA with experimental rock group Horse Lords, to a solo performance at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York, to the Donaueschinger Musiktage festival in Germany, to the Big Bang festival for children at the Onassis Cultural Center in Athens, Greece.
Rosenblatt earned a Bachelor of Music Degree from the Peabody Conservatory and a Master of Music Degree from the Yale School of Music, both under the tutelage of Robert van Sice. Additionally, Rosenblatt performed and studied contemporary chamber music with the Ictus and Spectra Ensembles in Belgium as part of their Advanced Masters academy program.
